Trump: Bernie Sanders Got Hernia From Trying To Heft Huge Tax Hike

By Casey Harper

Donald Trump joked that Bernie Sanders needed hernia surgery Monday because he was trying to heft the massive tax hikes that would come with his socialist policies.

Sanders left the campaign trail Monday for the surgery when Trump made the joke, CNN reports.

“You know why?” Trump asked the Georgia crowd regarding Sander’s hernia. “Carrying around too much tax problems.”

Trump went on to warn the crowd that Sanders was intent on skyrocketing taxes. Sanders has proposed several expensive government programs, including free college tuition and expanded Social Security.

“Because he’s gonna tax you,” Trump said. “He’s gonna tax you. But let’s not even talk about tax problems — he wants to double and triple everyone’s taxes, wants to bring you up to 90 percent!”

Sanders’s spokesman Michael Briggs responded with his own clever barb when asked about Trump’s comments, saying “There’s not enough time in the day to respond to every dumb thing Donald Trump says.”

The joke comes just days after Trump insulted a handicapped New York Times reporter, gesticulating wildly on stage to mock the man, who has a disability that impairs the movement of his arms. That joke drew criticism for Trump and became fodder for an attack ad from the former Ohio Governor and current presidential candidate John Kasich.

News broke Sunday that after Trump’s spat with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes had a few choice words for the candidate.
